English tutor offering online lessons, flexible range of related subjects and levels.

Methodology

I am a tutor specialising in English literature and language, but have also taught a wide range of subjects from GCSE through to Undergraduate level. I like to tailor my lessons to individual needs (particularly if students require help for specific deadlines/examinations) and am quick to identify problems with work and their solutions. Depending on the nature of the subject, I will aim to supply an organised and comprehensive structure to lessons, focussing as necessary on factual, structural/grammatical and creative aspects to learning.

Background

My last position was in Moscow teaching English, Philosophy, Media and History, so I am very happy to work with students who need help with these or similar subjects. Teaching abroad has meant that I have developed a flexible and understanding approach to teaching and an ability to know what is needed by different students and age groups. I have taught students ranging from young teenagers to adult business learners, in classroom situations, private one-to-one tuition and online. I have been happy to help my students achieve their goals, for example buy securing entrance places to schools and universities after successfully passing English entrance tests or by hugely improving their grades in GCSE/A/AS-Level examinations.
